Hong Kong security law Article 23 delayed by Covid-19 outbreak, says security chief

The legislation of Hong Kong’s own security law, Article 23, was delayed due to the city’s fifth wave of Covid-19, the city’s security chief said on Wednesday.

The Secretary for Security, Chris Tang, also said the government expected to be subject to “smearing” by “overseas media, foreign forces, and their local agents” when it launched the legislation, and that the government would have to reassure Hongkongers in the face of such “fabrications.”
